2:32 pm
right you have to push to put things in there that we have. as a model and model of the stuff you have to pre-clear in but the russians are clean and. there's no clean. supposed to be banned from the olympics but not the whole it's the first time the whole nation gets banned from the olympics and this is this is very pro for the sport for sure but don't but. on the olympics the olympics are. the u.k. has announced donald trump will be visiting britain in the second half of the year despite activists vowing to stage a huge protest when he arrives the president seems unfazed i think
2:33 pm
a lot of the people in your country like what i stand for they respect what i say and so those who voted for tough border are going to come to that now but to those who don't what do you say to them i don't care i don't care it's just one of those things i don't i don't say anything you know why because i don't care trying to visit had originally been planned for next month so he could officially open the new u.s. embassy in london however the president counseled the trip claiming he was not happy about the embassies move is the army has been looking at how the u.k. and the u.s. failed to find common ground last year. the u.k. prime minister to reason may has invited u.s. president donald trump to visit the united kingdom later this year it comes as the two leaders met at the world economic forum in davos and also comes amid rumors of a breakdown in the relationship between the two countries the feeling. like he.
2:34 pm
was the way they. were what a great. place for getting into. whether rumor or not what is real is that twenty seventeen saw a real strain in the so-called special relationship. was the only way. to reason made don't focus on me focus on the destructive radical islamic terrorism that is taking place within the united kingdom we're doing just fine and perhaps a change of heart by president trump in order to repair that relationship he's indicated that he's willing to apologize for retreating britain first if you're telling me that the harpy people horrible racist people i would certainly apologize if you'd like me to do that i know nothing about them previous announcement of a potential visit by trump or provoked a backlash amongst british politicians i would not wish to issue.
2:35 pm
to speak in. previous reports suggest that mr trump himself postponed a potential visit to the u.k. because he didn't want to be greeted by huge protests and attitudes he really changed a recent poll suggests that more than half fifty six percent of brits don't want president trump to visit if donald trump comes to the u.k. he will hold the biggest protest in british history he will be mad by million of us at. a citizen's arrest of him for incitement of racial hatred spoke to one of the anti trump protest organizers it's a bit disappointing that trump will be visiting and the prime minister treat him as has agreed to meet with him it's not completely surprising to be honest but it's disappointing you know they actually is accountable to the electorate and i think the population of britain has more than made its views clear in the fact that we
2:36 pm
don't want trump to visit we cannot stand his views he's no racist tweets that he's come out with his racist policies he's going to come here that that's going to happen we can't do anything about that but whilst he's here we know we will ensure that we hand him you know every step he takes in this country we will be there telling him what we think of him and telling him what we think of his policies should president trump's visit go ahead britain's security agencies could be getting ready for some of the biggest protests to rock this city since the visit of george w. bush in the wake of the iraq war a sally r.t. in london. welcome back after this short break stay with us. there was no you on the idea that dropping bombs brings police to the chicken hawks forcing you to buy the battle that. you saw to try to tell you that because of the tabloids i felt it was. one of my eyes and tell me you are not cool enough
2:37 pm
and like the crowd. all the hawks that we along with all the white. manufacture consent to public wealth. when the. project themselves. go around. the room to.
2:38 pm
come back now a new convoy of turkish trucks have been seen crossing into syria as part of ankara's operation against kurds there the ground operation is being supported by an intense air bombardment which reports claim recently left seven civilians dead these are the latest pictures from the ground showing the aftermath of the attack is the fear the air strikes may have claimed even more lives with people believed to be trapped under rubble witnesses claim the turkish aerial bombardments are targeting residential areas though. there are no military zones here all of them are civilian areas and the civilians were asleep it was nothing they bombed it even though there were no soldiers here we are all civilians. a lot michel fell about twenty five meters away shrapnel landed up in my hand i wanted to know why
2:39 pm
they were shelling civilians. well psyche says it's conducting an anti terror operation in africa the offensive is supported by several anti syrian government groups the areas they hold mock terror and green the turkish military claims almost four hundred kurdish and i'm so fighters have been killed since the start of the operation the un though is raising concerns claiming five thousand people have fled the area since the conflict started nevertheless the turkish leader has repeatedly vowed to expand the operation and most recently claimed it would go all the way to the iraqi border. we're going to continue the early french operation until we achieve our goals and then as promised to clear monday's of tourists after that we will continue i was trying to go up to the iraqi border until no terrorists are left. president says turkey will push on to the city of man beach and then even further to the east towards the iraqi border the move would not only mean an
2:40 pm
all out offensive against the syrian kurds but could also threaten u.s. personnel stationed in this area it's foreign ministers of the us to immediately withdraw from each american troops have been assisting the local kurds in their anti eisel operation with a pentagon official recently announcing the creation of a thirty thousand strong border security force in the region well this was to be comprised launch lee of code something that infuriated ankara and prompted it to launch its attack on kurdish positions in syria the us secretary of state rex tillerson later backtracked on the idea saying officials misspoke and the plans had been misrepresented antiwar activist richard baca believes that washington's behavior can be explained by the fact it's now caught between two allies but we have what appears to be a somewhat intractable contradiction between the u.s.
2:41 pm
interest in syria and the u.s. interest in nato and so this is something the trying to find a way out of but it's very difficult given the fact that it was the united states along with turkey saudi arabia france britain which caused the destabilisation of syria and led to the present circumstances and the united states on the other hand is tied in with the y.p. g. forces inside syria who have been the main fighting forces that the u.s. has been allied with in the battle against isis but more than that to maintain a u.s. presence inside syria which the u.s. military has been declaring is there for indefinitely. a new british sas hire the death of stalin has sparked much debate in russia with some claiming the film distorts history others say it's just a comedy russia's culture ministry has banned the movie though one moscow cinema screened it anyway leading to
2:42 pm
a police raid on our reports from that very cinema oh wow. when asked if this british movie follows the last days and death of joseph stalin as well as the political infighting that ensued so why is it having a problem here in russia it's not about starving themselves but it is about the timing the showing of this movie was supposed to coincide with the anniversary of the battle of stalingrad it was one of the most decisive moments in the second world war and it's bloodiest battle and since this movie is dark comedy it is showing in a rather satirical way some of the people that made this victory for russia in that war possible so some are saying that this movies is a bit insensitive for the veterans and those who cherish the memories of the great
2:43 pm
patriotic war many elderly people will perceive it as an offensive mockery of the soviet past the country that conquered fascism and most disgusting the victims of stalinism we don't have censorship we're not afraid of critical assessment of our history. such movies shouldn't even get into russia they shouldn't be discussed just don't let them be shown. i'm ready to come to the cinemas where the film will be shown to speak to those who bought tickets the film is a provocation that might add fuel to the fire so the russian ministry of culture decided to revoke the license of the movie when it comes to public opinion well it's played some agree that some may find the timing a bit insensitive others are saying it's art it's not intended to be story accurate and that people probably shouldn't be taking it too seriously it's just a black comedy like distortion in songs or people talking about. it is brilliant i
2:44 pm
think such films should be shown on primetime t.v. . this film is from the tragic fast protest genre and shouldn't see it from the viewpoint of historical accuracy a few months ago a russian movie found itself in. my gun tickle situation the film called matilda was telling the story of the last russian tsar nicholas the second and his love affair with a ballerina and the reason that movie faced so much opposition both from the politicians and from ordinary people in the street is because according to the russian orthodox church nicholas the second is a saint so some details of his personal of his love life could be disturbing to a religious person in russia the outcome of that story was the movie was allowed to be shown and people had a chance to make up their own mind while the fate of the death of stalin remains in limbo it goes down oh. well we'd love to hear your thoughts on this story and
2:45 pm
everything else i do get in touch by following guys on social media i'll be back at the top of the hour with the latest headlines i'll see you then. yes i was pretty good with the market but you. jump in the last election i believe the words are almost there we're going to move a wall so you will but you know one of the things to offer a little push it out so. i think you. understand doodles a little scouts move you to constantly you know. easy shows reading the book stage. you will know that. the secret is the english so you can you get other qualities but then you tell me
2:46 pm
if you didn't was told me my space and i'll post a. link to a one story she's using the press the right decision for the. exchange so let me see. oh goody in this case since the cd this week we've done just. the. busiest says harlan kentucky the. whole goal of this move them voices is you can walk through street fanny's leave. a ko money since he was almost no coal mines lived. two jobs are gone all the coal mines the said i'd. love to see these people the survivors of
2:47 pm
a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see that end it's how it's happened. is america as it actually is it's a bomb it was a fantasy child is reality and he's doing what you'd expect a seasoned businessman to do cut all the nonsense out of the mix bring jobs back.
2:48 pm
i'm afterthoughts here we're going underground us today u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson commemorates the dead of auschwitz seventy three years to the day that soviet troops liberated the not seek on. coming up in the show as all the bosses a multi-billion dollar failed multinational cover the in a summoned to westminster for questioning we are one of jeremy corbin's key problem in the form of shadow emergencies minister chris williamson why his party countenanced signing deals with the caribbean and the director of global justice now which is a future british labor government to atone for its sins and stop the n.h.s. being a cash cow by a profit hungry pharmaceutical industry. where it is going to face up to reality and take action to save the n.h.s. from just fine. jeremy called in that alone u.k.
2:49 pm
foreign secretary boards johnson slams the government for destroying britain's health yes this goal is a ball coming up a debate going on the ground but first while washington decides on yet more sanctions against what it perceives as its nuclear armed opponent moscow it is russia that prepares to host talks on syria in sochi for united states media characterized as fake news by the republic's president this is the kind of reporting to expect on monday is u.s. state funded p.b.s. one of the main drivers of the war these past two years russia's president vladimir putin began an effort to put a greater political stamp on what comes next in syria. he was a confident cruden who declared the end of the syrian civil war is finally in sight and he was clear about who gets the credit as well he might be but why is putin one of the main drivers of the syrian war surely he's one of the main peacemakers along with president rouhani of took in there on new meeting to discuss peace in russia
2:50 pm
on monday surely one of the main drivers of war was this man we organized the friends of syria we are mobilizing humanitarian support and support for the opposition when we went into libya and we were able to immediately stop the massacre. because of the unique circumstances and the coalition that we had helped to organize we also had to make sure that wal-mart gadhafi didn't stay there former president obama there justifying regime change in syria by bizarrely using libya and defacto supporting the assassination of gadhafi there and tourism a was of course in the u.k. government when it supported destroying africa's richest country and was prime minister when she was arguably one of the main drivers of the syrian war killing maiming or displacing millions we need a political solution a political long term solution which sees a syria without assad who is tourism a only u.k. prime minister because of a defacto billion plus bribe to tell other countries who they should or shouldn't
2:51 pm
be led by and isn't her government support for groups like the white helmets tantamount to being one of the main drivers of the war in syria well arguably it's all over though and while u.k. media outlets like the state mandated b.b.c. and state owned channel four continue to broadcast the questionable footage no one at sochi in russia or on monday will be taking any notice of their so-called journalism the three powers of russia turkey and iran will also take less notice of the cia u.s. officials say the president donald trump has decided to end the cia's program of arming syria and surjit the cia program was launched by then president barack obama in twenty thirteen the cia is reported to have spent up to one billion dollars a year on the theory operations informed opinion in the usa appears to be clearly running ahead of british mainstream journalists the minority tory government and the blairite neocon majority in the bottom and three labor party it's been widely
2:52 pm
reported that for years now the cia was providing arms intelligence money and other types of support to these armed militants who were working hand in hand and who are working hand in hand and oftentimes under the command of al-qaeda in syria but if donald trump can't. cia support for so-called moderate rebels dres a millionaire cabinet of continue to support a coup d'etat in syria that's why u.k. labor leader jeremy corbyn as well as our next guest oppose the bombing of damascus for chris williams and britain's former shadow emergencies minister money is apparently better spent on health services than bombing urban centers in the middle east he joins me now chris thanks for coming back on the show before we go into health service issues and and other infrastructure issues is it true that around christmas time you advocated the doubling of council tax across this country have no what i've suggested is that local government seized by the initiative by using legislation that the tories put in place in two thousand and twelve to offer a range of discount so essentially what you would be able to do is stop the cuts in
2:53 pm
local government at a stroke by loading the burden on those with the broad shoulders so that basically living in the biggest houses and freeze concept or even reduce it for people living in small the warnings in the band sort of a to see possibly even deal even aid in some areas there's no one size fits all it will just depend on how many of the long properties in age there are in any given local authority area which would then give local ford to see to either load the burden there but it would have to then be agreed in a referendum on that the two thousand and eleven localism act should be getting that democratic buy and people would have to vote for it but the choice would be either a cost x. increase across the board of six percent or for most people freeze it and stop the cuts the alternative is increase if everybody and continue with the cuts i think that's a pretty good deal and a stopgap measure which is well worth considering where is that idea right now what the labor party policy is something that came up in my local authority area following the latest iteration of the cuts in darby the council's plan to close the
2:54 pm
largest give them over to the third sector a lot of local people are asking me what i was going to do about it it's true that this idea came forward and so therefore been going around speaks people of the country who are interested in this idea no local forces take it but i want to seriously giving it consideration well. well you were live you won't stop me because we'll talk about labor in a second but. move to boris johnson u.k. foreign secretary is going to join jerry goldman's labor party given that he wants more money for the health service here well i mean a clearly than l. service is in desperate need of investment what we actually need to do it seems to me that with the last morris johnson well i buy the idea that we put more money into the national health service but we also need to reform the national health service to kick the privateers out of health care indeed in the aftermath of the karelian scandal we need to remove the private sector from all public services and what they're doing essentially and what has been happening for decades we've heard of neo liberalism it's something that's afflicted new labor as well is the public
2:55 pm
services have been used as a cash cow to generate private profit and we're not getting value for money that's the point and i think what we're suggesting is that yes we need to invest more but we want to get more bang for the book as it were and have proper democratic oversight of the public services the way in which the private is make their margins is by screwing down the workforce that they employ cutting back on their terms and conditions and diminishing the quality of service to the general public and we see that with the crisis in the national health service which is apparently the not the health service never been better prepared for the others. according to the prime minister but the reality is you know i'm going to stocking up any people are dying while they're waiting for an ambulance to arrive are people being treated on corydoras i mean is that absolutely appalling mess but is it not true that your party when in power is signing off deals with karylle it your leader said no there's no contract signed with the prime minister us i have a visa waiver here which has the lead service city but east leeds orbital road
2:56 pm
a preferred bidder signature by the leeds council or neighbor for karelian they were signing things off with karelian before the collapse how how could you possibly i think i think i think they retrieved that and i think what we've they have to bear there is no good no no i think the treaty before they actually signed that off but you know we've had as you say the. no contract no recorder wasn't lying directly but there was a preferred bidder stages given to really after all the profit yes indeed and the problem has been the model that held sway for the last four decades is not fit for purpose was really fit for purpose then and for a lot of local authorities or public sector organizations it was a kind of only show in town i mean when i was leader of the council in dalby a number of years ago when i did the first peer fi scheme in the city it was during a labor government that's true but it was to bring properties back into use and then to rent you were involved in that i was because it was the only show it isn't the problem you talk the talk against your liberalism you have
2:57 pm
a lead council which is trying to have negotiations with karelian while corby in the newly does a no no we don't want that contract as in the health services it's not true is it it is true and i think you've got to separate the difficulties that local authorities find themselves in in terms of the way in which they can access finance and central government what we need is a change in the system and that will only happen when we get a change of government or a change of heart from the agility in the system or a change in people in the labor party who's been appointed shadow secretary of state for northern ireland he was a lot b. is for pharmaceutical companies we're talking to nick dearden in the end of this show about the need for labor to call out the big pharmaceutical companies because they're charging so much in the n.h.s. you do deals with i mean you have people that explicitly support the big pharmaceutical companies well i mean obviously i would have to speak for himself
2:58 pm
but our position is you know in relation to going forward and how we organize economy is i think very clear on jeremy corbin and i've already accepted the fact that you know for the last forty years or most. of that gordon brown and tony blair are not going to be like the razor me and slag your they're all of the organised different absolutely. how different is he i mean you have a councils in this country labor council get off shoring funds to avoid tax have to go to local well this and local governments is in a paulus situation and i don't know the details about why certain doing that but when local government if it absolutely decimated with funding cuts you know there will be some creative accountant see going on in order to try to minimise the impact of suspect on frontline services but i speak for certain i don't know that the local government is one thing what about the fact that at the conference in brighton widely seen as a successful labor conference there were tables going for more than a thousand pounds for pharmaceutical company bosses to come and meet with people in
2:59 pm
germany gorgons labor party do represent pharmaceuticals in belgrade new energy future you offer they can they can come and talk to is certainly but i am very strong of a firm view that there is a very powerful case to bring much if not all of the pharmaceutical industry into public ownership because if you look at the cost to the national health service of you know buying drugs medicines from the pharmaceutical industry is colossal and i know a lot of people will all be well you know they make the margins because they put a lot of effort into research to develop it and they got to get their money back somehow i think i'll bet on frankly by the public sector the public sector is perfectly capable of undertaking research he develops and indeed many of the great leaps forward that we've made technologically speaking have actually been achieved funks the innovation in the public sector which is then being exploited by the private sector while we are the sixth richest nation on earth and yet we've got people sleeping in shop doorways in every town and city in the country every town or city in the country is going desperately wrong when that kind of thing is
3:00 pm
allowed to happen and you know in many ways is a false economy because there are all sorts of costs to the to the health service in terms of criminal. or it is you know the police and the criminal justice system etc who have to pick up the pieces of a broken. system i mean you know the former prime minister david cameron has talk about broken britain on going to me only it was broken is broken because of neo liberalism and if it is broken then my goodness me is absolutely smashed to smithereens now of the last eight years of relentlessly many people may agree with you even your and what you talk about pharmaceuticals momentum which has been credited with as being so important for jeremy corbin's leadership had to come out fighting on the murdoch front pages this week saying we're not going to diesel lect they were m.p.'s i labor m.p.'s that completely disagree with what you've just said is this way tony blair is now back on the seam every other day talking thing.
